General Mark Milley Says National Guard Troops Had Bayonets During Black Lives Matter Riots, Arson in DC Last Month

Black Lives Matter and Antifa cohorts riot and torch historic church in Washington DC.

Leftists torched the historic St. John’s Church, vandalized the WWII monument, vandalized the Korean War monument, vandalized the Lincoln Memorial, attacked police and national guard members with rocks, bottles and fireworks.

General Mark Milley confirmed this week that National Guard troops sent to Washington DC to protect America’s historical monuments during violent riots last month.

Milley told reporters this week National Guard soldiers had bayonets on their guns.

It is not clear which national guard troops he was talking about.

Last month General Milley famously told reporters he never should have walked with President Trump to the ruins of St. John’s Church. Milley was also against using the National Guard against violent mobs ransacking cities all over the US.

FOX News reported on the bayonets on Friday morning.
